of course i searched internet for a recipe. it did not look too difficult.

  1. i fried some chicken fat (veg oil do just as well) in a large claypot, added cut ginger pieces & salted fish & some chopped garlic, fried for short while to get the aroma.
  2. then i removed the salted fish & set aside, added 2 cups of rice & fried.
  3. i then added just less than 2 cups water (to provide for liquid in the marinated chicken so rice would not be wet & soggy), boiled & simmered.
  4. i had some cut chicken (i used 1/2 chicken) marinated with 3 tsp fish sauce, 2 tsp oyster sauce, 2 tsp sesami oil, 1 tsp dark sauce, 2 tsp corn flour for about 2hrs. also sliced 1 pork sausage & 1 liver sausage, and 5 chinese mushrooms.
  5. i set timer for 8 mins, then added the the chicken + sausage to the rice, simmered at low fire.
  6. i reset timer for another 15mins.
  7. lastly i added the shanghai greens + salted fish

for my first time on 17.3.2016, the rice could be just a tag drier, but it was pretty ok as it were.

for this evening on 19.3.2016, the rice was quite perfect.

we thoroughly enjoyed the claypot rice, and we finished just about everything.

we were saying it must be like 10 to 15yrs since we last had claypot rice (until my freind brought me to new lucky claypot rice one plus week ago on 11.3.2016). we used to go to the stall at chinatown food centre level 2 when the children were very young.

it was quite perfect actually!
